We love exploring America’s back roads and small towns and finding overlooked gems that the tourist brochures never cover. In a series of weekly blog posts we will be sharing some of America’s lesser-known small town museums, historic sites, and oddball attractions, on a state-by-state basis. We don’t have room to cover each and every […]

Another Busy Day

Yesterday was another busy day for us. It seems like we’ve had a lot of those lately, doesn’t it? We left Elkhart Campground with our Explorer loaded to the brim with bundles of envelopes containing the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. Our first stop was the commercial mail service in South Bend that we […]

Miss Terry was out of bed by 4 a.m. yesterday morning. She could have slept in a little bit longer, but she said she woke up and just couldn’t get back to sleep, because her mind was already going full speed ahead. So she got up and started her day early. I was lazy and […]

Yesterday, I finished what I hope is our final schedule for our Ohio Gypsy Journal Rally, and posted it on the rally registration page. Unless there is a major error that both myself and Miss Terry have missed, or we have a last minute cancellation, there won’t be any further changes. We have a couple […]

One of the things we love about Elkhart Campground is that everybody we know seems to pass through here eventually. And lately, we’ve had lots of friends stopping by to visit. Monday, Charlie and Ruth Babcock, from Sterling Heights, Michigan, were passing through town on their Harley Davidson motorcycle, and came by to say hello. […]

Yesterday our pal Al Hesselbart from the RV Hall of Fame Museum took us for a ride into Michigan to show us some great boat launches along the Saint Joseph River. Al is a dedicated bass fisherman and has fished the lakes and rivers of northern Indiana and southern Michigan for years, and I don’t […]

A heat wave has settled on the Midwest, and yesterday it was 91 degrees and very humid, making it uncomfortable to do anything outside. Fortunately, we had enough to do inside to keep us busy all day long. We had a couple of orders to fill and mail out, and Miss Terry had a lot […]

Yesterday we tackled a problem that has been bothering us for a while, remounting our flat screen TVs in both the living room and bedroom. The folks at RV Renovators in Mesa, Arizona did a good job of rebuilding our TV cabinets last winter, but after the job was done, we realized that we needed […]

Yesterday was a rainy day here at Elkhart Campground. I’m glad we didn’t have anything that we needed to do outdoors, because it was a good day to stay inside. Before the rain started, I dumped our holding tanks. I’m looking forward to getting over to Celina,Ohio, where Kevin from Cruising America RV Service Company […]

Why is it that if I goof off for just one day, I’m suddenly two or three days behind schedule? How does that happen? So I spent yesterday making up for lost time. I started putting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal together as soon as I got up, and pretty much stayed at […]
